Astralis win the ELEAGUE 2017 Major against Virtus.pro with a 2-1 scoreline (12-16 Nuke, 16-14 Overpass, 16-14 Train)!

The map veto for the grand final of the ELEAGUE Atlanta Major 2017 between Virtus.pro and Astralis came down to Nuke (VP), Overpass (Astralis) and Train (decider).

Nicolai "device" Reedtz started the pistol round on Nuke with an aggressive outside push from the CT side, catching out Filip "NEO" Kubski who was setting up for smokes to supplement the A site execute. Being a man dawaown and, more importantly, lacking utility, Virtus.pro changed their plan and got control of the lower site through ramp, but weren't able to hold off the retake.

Despite the plant in the pistol round, Virtus.pro went for a force buy in round two and executed a push on the A sitethis time successfully—and took the round with some Tec-9 headshots. The Poles powered through the Danish defenses in the following rounds, getting a 5-1 lead before Astralis managed to shut down their A site pushes.

Astralis tied the score at 6-6 thanks to some good plays by Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander and device, but weren't able to get in the lead thanks to Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski who held off the retake of B in a 1v3 situation.


Virtus.Pro had reasons to smile after Nuke

Virtus.pro finished the Terrorist half 9-6 up, Astralis tied the score by winning the second pistol round and the two following rounds by making it 9-9. The first buy round went Virtus.pro's way and put the Danes on an eco due to their costly anti-eco rounds, but Snax's aggression was punished by the pistols and lead to Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen clutching a 1v1 on the A site to tie the score again, this time at 10-10.

Unfortunately for Astralis, they were caught out by Virtus.pro's pistol-armor lobby push—and the trading of rounds continued. Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye was involved in two 2v2's that went the way of Astralis to make the score 12-12, however, the Danes were once again defeated by an ecoing Virtus.pro side. That round finally broke Astralis and allowed Virtus.pro to close out their map pick 16-12.


Astralis could've won VP's map pick

Paweł "byali" Bieliński and Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas secured an almost unwinabble 2v3 in the first pistol round on Overpass, retaking the A site and defusing the bomb in the last possible moment. Astralis replied with a force buy win thanks to dupreeh's quad kill on B and the Danes took the early lead on their map pick.

Virtus.pro struggled to deal with Astralis' slow, execute based style and gla1ve and co. got 6-2 up before Snax clutched a 1v2 on B to start the Poles' resurgence on Overpass. The score was 6-5 when Astralis kicked it in a high gear again and finished the Terrorist half with a 9-6 lead.

Astralis won the CT pistol, but another force buy win followed—NEO took off two heads with the Scout to open up the A site for his teammates, making it 10-7. Two anti eco rounds later, Astralis' mid aggression was shut down by the Poles, still, Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth secured the round for his team by winning a 1v3 situation.

Despite a few rounds in which he struggled to support his team, byali shined in rounds 23 and 24, picking up entry frags and multi-kills, making the score 11-13. The Poles continued the string of round by closing out a few anti-ecos and securing a 4v5 by executing on the A site, and took the lead for the first time in the map with a 14-13 scoreline.

Virtus.pro were on the brink of closing it out in the following round when Kjaerbye won a 1v1 against the clutch master Snax to keep his team in it—and allow Astralis to close out Overpass 16-14 and force the third map.


Xyp9x was the main man for Astralis on Overpass

Virtus.pro kicked off Train with a simple B rush, overwhelming the inner site defenses and set themselves up for a 3-0 start. In the first gun round, the Polish side faked B and then hit A that was defended only by dupreeh—taking the site and the round easily.

The Polish powerhouse pounced on the opportunity and won the first seven rounds in a row, capitalizing on Astralis' low economy. After that, the Danish team managed to avoid being reset by saving an AWP and started to mount their comeback. It was 8-5 when TaZ made a 1v3 into a 1v1 against Kjaerbye, but the 18-year-old Dane showed up with the clutch once again, defusing the bomb with 0.1 seconds to go.

Virtus.pro switched to the CT side with a 9-6 lead and extended the lead by winning the first three rounds of the second half, making it 12-6. Astralis clawed their way back into the first gun round from a two-man deficit only to be reset by a force by from the Poles in the next one.

Xyp9x's 1v1 win against Snax made the score 13-8 and allowed Astralis to start their comeback from the T side. With four rounds won in a row, gla1ve's team went for a B where they managed to overwhelm the inner site expert TaZ to get a round away from equaling the scoreline at 12-13.

Despite Astralis' anti-eco mishap in the ensuing round, the Danes recovered and closed out the final map 16-14!

You are dumb as fuck. Astralis even lost both pistols on train and was behind 0-7 and 7-13 but still brought it back to win it! They fully deserve the win! VP made a good fight out of it but Astralis are just tooooooo stronk.

The way that SK played this tournament was to make Fox as good as possible, which means that he gets all the positions that he wants, it doesn't mean that he's any better cause he got more frags ( if even that )
2017-01-29 20:59
He played exactly like fnx, why sk should care about fox, this standin bs, just stop it, sk played bad, fox carryed in semis, but his team was low, nt.

Sk NEVER had cache OR cobble, nip just let it slip at the end(unintented pun). They were outplayed. Are you just going to ignore all the rounds Astralis lost in the beginning? You are only looking at the rounds nip lost in the end. I could just look at the rounds nip won in the beginning, like you are. Doesn't fucking matter how you get there (unless its some stupid 1v5 clutches or something) a 16-14 win is a 16-14 win.

the king had its filthy slave down on his knees with his hands tied behind his back. The king was tired though and desides to go to sleep, but before he even knows it his slave is starting to choke him. The king swiftly takes his dagger and drives it up his slaves throat.

Grats to the Astralis for making it to the stars with their first major final. Big applause to Virtus.Pro, they had the last two maps in their hand but faced Astralis' old syndrome. Why can't we have two winners to be honest? Both teams served excellent CS to viewers making us real winners. Looks like 2017 gonna be superb year to watch some damn good CS. Grats to device for becoming MVP of the major.

"<3 virtus.pro", hahahah, your team did the beast that they can, they tried, support them because they lost for 16-14 on a major final not 16-0 or something like that u idiot
2017-01-29 20:37
SOZ WHERE IS SK? HAHAHA SK THOUGHT THEY ARE MIGHTY. BUT THEY ARE SHITTY

2017-01-30 11:16
so, u are saying that SK played shit? They're playing with fox (stand-in) and they lost to vp on semi-finals 19-17 and 16-14, for me, this isn't bad at all.

not deserved at all, and kjaer with his shitty shaking and pulling out shots out of his ass piece of shits lucky af
2017-01-29 20:35
I'm a VP fan and supported them for this game, so before you try to say "huurr duurr fanboy bla" remember this. So what about all you noobs who don't know shit about "aim" in general and in details and always believe that "shaking" is weird? Since when do you fucking play FPS games on PC? Are you like some sort of console plebs or forever noob who never played a game at pro level and never witnessed actual pro players with crazy shaky aim? Because this is what your message tells me. Get some knownledge butthurt. And respect the winner.
2017-01-29 20:39
who tf are you tryna tell me smth about the game i got contact to taz etc since he was playing 1.6 and im sure ik about 150% more knowledge than you 14yr mofo
2017-01-29 20:42
lmfao "i know taz therefore me>you" stfu noname toilet cleaner and get some respect. if taz saw you flaming astralis like this he'd probably delete you
2017-01-29 20:56
Do you think your profile means shit? Dude, get real, if you knew anything about pro FPS on PC you wouldn't spit out some kind of bullshits like "muhhh SHAKY HANDS REEEEEEEEEEEE". Like... WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK? You're trying to show off with your profile? You should be embarrassed right now, you're just shit. That's what it means. You are SHIT. I can tell you SOME MANY pro Quake (hardest FPS in history it SHITS on noob CS), Unreal Tournament players with shaky ass aim like they have some sort of illness. And here you are acting like you know shit about aiming? Fuck off, even on noob games like battlefield players like Relaaa have aimbot/shaky style aim. But it's ok you all CS noobs only know how to flick shots and strafe aim, you have never learned how to track, and as soon as someone ADAD in game you cry and make threads on HLTV/steam/reddit to say "BUUH MUUH GABEN PLZ NERF THIS IS NOT CS ANYMORE", on Quake you learn 5 different style of aiming and shaky aim isn't weird (fucking K1llsen, one of the best of the game and if you don't know him then you better SHUT THE FUCK UP because it only means you know JACK SHIT about aiming). Plz get some fucking knowledge fucking noob. PS: you think I'm 14 yo? So how old are you? If you are an old school player like me how come you think that "shaking" is not legit? Get fucking real you scrub. Go back masturbating while strafe aiming fucking kiddo. And I don't give a fuck about your Taz story? I played/mixed with Quake pros (Stermy, Strenx, etc) before. But I'm sure you know who Stermy is :D (btw he sometimes had shaky aim too).
2017-01-29 21:00
add me well talk on, i think ur hilarous we'll talk on ts or some shit hahahaha
2017-01-29 21:37
You didn't even answer, I can already see how this goes. You don't know shit, someone (me) called you out, and you think that you can somehow buy your way out by saying "haha u funny add me blabla ts"??? Try harder please.
2017-01-29 21:46
lol wanna talk to you on ts because i think youre the one trying hard rn hahaha lets talk boi
2017-01-29 21:47
You're changing subject, I'm not. You're trying so hard by changing the goal post/subject. You don't know shit about aim. Period.
2017-01-29 21:48
mad af bruh i proved youre 14 wont talk about the subject with your mouth bruh add me or get lost baguette
2017-01-29 21:49
> keeps changing subject Conclusion: you got destroyed in public, you're afraid to type here, because you clearly know JACK SHIT, just delete your HLTV account, this way you won't have to spit bullshits anymore. It's ok, shhhh, it's ok to be so shit (just stop acting like you're not though). By the way, it's funny that, as a 14 years old boy I type so much better than you. Fucking uneducated fuck, where did you learn how to spell? You only play video games and don't want to go to school? :(
2017-01-29 21:52
triggereeed af 14 yr old kiddo you got my acc you can explain everything with ur mouth but as see ur some sort of autist and that is pretty funny :D
2017-01-29 21:52
Yes I'm 14, I'm triggered, I'm "kiddo". So what? You still don't know shit about aim, and you're fucking shit as well. I don't see what's wrong here? Facts.
2017-01-29 21:53
Come on, we are in public here, everyone has to see what the fuck is happening. You think you know anything? inb4 "add me", I don't give a fuck. Everything happens HERE. COME ON I'M WAITING.
2017-01-29 21:55
youre living the life m8 youre a real thug "Everything happens HERE. COME ON I'M WAITING." IM PISSING IN MY PANTS DUDE ARE YOU SERIOUS hahahahahha i just wanna have a nice conversation with you autistic kid but you are afraid of talkin god gave you a mouth dude
2017-01-29 21:57
It's great that I'm autistic, it's amazing that you think I'm funny. So let's go, let's talk RIGHT HERE. Stop changing the subject you shithead. 1000 posts later and you still haven't said anything about >>>> AIM <<<<. Why? Look's like because YOU DON'T KNOW SHIT.
2017-01-29 21:59
Dude you are the retard right now that has no balls to talk about the subject why write fucking texts about some sites when you clearly can open your ugly ass mouth to talk youre an autistic fuck dude add me or cya gay ass somewhere else im open to talk to you senseless noname :'D
2017-01-29 22:02

So let's be happy for the Danes this time. What a final! Device, finally the trophy to go with the legendary performances over the years. Dupreeh, what an entry fragger...that final round, you'll never forget that in a lifetime! Well done to all the guys, Xyp played so good in map 1 and 2, Kje too and Glaive holding it all together. Well done guys, gg! Legends!

Still have goosebumps running down my spine from how absolutely incredible that entire final was. Every map was action packed, both teams poured their hearts into every round, so much respect for both teams for just laying it all out there. DESERVED for Astralis, happy to see them get the monkey off their back and WP VP, proving to the world that age doesn't matter and roster stability is still actually a thing in 2017.

It had a sick crowd,very organized,no delay,very few technical timeouts so why you have to bother.This major reached the view peak,about 1,3 million views and you still say that cologne 2014 was better.Y`all patethic...

2017-01-29 20:42
this final shows that device is always choking in big games. Nice one snax, and good luck VP. You was so close to get 2 major title.

lol yes, he cheats on lan ofc :D
2017-01-29 20:48
If it wasn't for those two tec9 buy rounds that Australis won on train they would've won. Great game either way congratz astralis.
2017-01-29 20:46
You could say that for both sides - VP also won a lot of Eco rounds. :)
2017-01-29 21:47

2017-01-29 20:46
If Astralis had lost like VP just did every single person would have written CHOKE! When VP does it, it's a "throw". Stellar logic. Congratulations Astralis. Happy for these dudes!

It will be such a shame if he is gonna be chosed as the major mvp. The only major mvp with a 0.84 rating at the final series lol
2017-01-29 20:55
But to be honest Astralis would never have been in the final if it wasn't for device. He should be named MVP, it's not only based on the final but the entire tournament.
2017-01-29 20:55
With his winning mentality he's definitely not happy with his performance..! Of course he gives a fuck. But obviously the championship overshines that right now.

2017-01-29 20:49
After VP lost that 4v3 afterplant, I somehow knew that round will come to haunt them later.
2017-01-29 20:49
If it hadn't been for Kjaerbye's outstanding performance, this would have been a really hard game for Astralis. device had a real hard time on the three maps and on train especially, VP understood how big the danger would have been if they didn't neutralize him. Congrats Astralis, this time you can officially say that you were the better team.
2017-01-29 20:49
I'd say that this was a pretty hard game for Astralis... haha :D But it could have been easier if device had showed up.
2017-01-29 20:53
It WAS a really hard game, haha! But you could say the same thing about Snax and VP. Only three players with a positive kd rate....! Insane!

2017-01-29 20:50
VP beats SK AT SEMI ESL NY, VP BEATS SK AT EPICCENTER SEMI and VP beats SK semifinal at Eleague and can't win a Tournament where they had it all on their hands because lucktralis managed to look more worse than SK. F8 this sport and VP WHAT WAS THAT. Understand my madness..
2017-01-29 20:50
You could also argue that VP were lucky to win all those ecos and weak buys that they won... if they hadn't the result could have looked much more favorable for Astralis.
2017-01-29 20:52
Yeah VP was also luck that is true, but I would understand your argument if VP would've won the Major, but now its quite true that Astralis won rounds in a normal world which they shouldn't have won. Kjaerbye 0.1 second Tec-9 yolo rush, xyp9x 1-3 but yeah VP had also luck when they won just with pistols.
2017-01-29 20:59
In the end these matches comes down to details and momentum, and Astralis showed fantastic heart and will to win. Lucky or not.
2017-01-29 21:01
Yep while VP showed otherwise you're right. It is how it is. Especially i can't believe that Astralis made VP to a "counterchoker" and yet Astralis has also deserved to have a Major ( i obviously meant the 3 player core)
2017-01-29 21:06
Yeah. It was about time. It must have been hard for these guys with all the hate from the community and almost never getting cheered on by the crowds at the big tournaments.
2017-01-29 21:18
Yeah understandable especially they were known as Chokestralis but VP had their hands on the trophy and astralis just came to chop them awa sadly...

First time in a grand final at a major, down 0 - 8 at the last map, such a young team being able to climbe back and win the map? Great mentality and strenght shown.

2017-01-29 20:52
it can't get more intense than this all the clutches, the comebacks, it was back and forth all the time. Astralis showed increadible mental strength, the choking is over, they grinded out a comeback victory against the plow, the most stable finals team ever. no more choking Astralis is number 1, the best in the world and no one can doubt that this was the most intense CS game I ever watched

you've got to be joking. VP never had problems against astralis and now they lost after finally beating SK and also they lost on their best maps... shameful." VP WON three times vs SK only to lose in the finals. And Train ain't their best Map and yeah it was shameful how retarded they lost everything. This was the worst way and especially for all the VP fans the worst lose we've to witness. As i doubt VP will ever be close to do it. I am simply emotionally dead.

2017-01-29 21:39
you shouldn't complain. VP won countless pistol/eco rounds in that match.
2017-01-29 21:42
Im not complaining about this match, generally it shouldnt happen even with stupid mistakes, 5 tec9's > 5 m4's lul
2017-01-29 21:48
Agreed. Pistols should be slightly nerfed.
2017-01-29 21:56
I actually think it's more entertaining when it's more unpredictable - teams not always losing eco rounds.
2017-01-29 22:01
I dont care if I lose to some kek9 rushes but if you lose a map in the major grand final cause of this, thats crushing. NiP lost 1st final map because of Fnatic tec9's and now VP probably lost the whole grand final because of this one round. Tec9 rush...
2017-01-29 22:15
Of course it's crushing - but it super entertaining as a viewer, that you can't expect anti-eco wins every time. Today both teams won several eco rounds. And what a fantastic game it was! Feel for vp though... could've gone either way.

Please throw away those stupid bo1 groups! Gambit & Navi were so much of bo1 heroes, it's not even funny. Let teams show their true strength, and finally stop that retarded randomizer, there are 7 maps, you can let each team ban 3 maps and play what they want to play, why to let one of the teams ban 1 map more comparing to their opponent? Guys, it's MAJOR, a tournament with the best teams, it shouldn't be random!

VP lost the final, but what was the finale? One of the best in the past 3 years, if not the best. Each map aligned in each of victory decided by a matter of luck. CS at the highest level is the gambling.

VP played different CT in compare to previous games. I think in the beginning they tried to counter what Astralis did with them on practice and it didn't work. Then they lost B side twice in unlucky way (each time Astralis pushed after granade from Taz, coaccident? don't think so, they knew his pos I guess then) and then after they didn't have enough money to throw granades at begin. They didn't play much for information or tried to guess side which was very surprising, instead VP's very default was outplayed well by Astralis (same happened on Overpass) and that cost VP the map.

As a Norwegian SK fan i must say Astralis deserved that all over... The sick comeback they did.! I must say that is the most nerve wracking i have seen. When that is said, VP played a hell of a game too. They did very well. Respect for that. GL next time :)

Deserved. Happy for Astralis, they finally won after a lot of struggle and semis

WP Astralis. Kjaerby with the nerves of steel, without him they're not even winning overpass. Device choked pretty hard on the last 2 maps but came through with some key AWP frags on train. Xyp9x clutch on overpass was massieve. And finally glaive with a great call to rush for the last 2 round wins on train. Ballsy. VP were great too but got caught off-guard by glaive's masterful rush tactics. One of the best majors I've ever watched overall and arguably the best Finals ever imo.

For me Virtus.pro is the best team in the world. Remember that Neo and Taz have over 30 years and Pasha is close. They play at the highest level in 11 years. WCG 2006 their first big success, and then it was at once the better. You have to respect a team.

Rofl all i wanted was to see some clips that YOU felt were suspicious so i could assess them. I did not say if i think he is cheating or not. But apparently my nationality makes it completely impossible for you to have a rational conversation

Completely deserved. All 3 maps were incredibly exciting to watch and I do not begrudge astralis their victory. They all deserve it. Hats off for both teams for a sick final - was epic!

What did you do expect retard! It's only natural that it turns out like that, just like if VP would have been the victors the majority of people in this thread would most likely have been polish.
